Important Information


Reception PE: The children have PE every Tuesday morning. Please ensure that your child has got their named kit in school each Tuesday. It is especially important to make sure they have their water bottle with them for PE days too. After working really hard in the PE hall, their first stop is always the water shelves!


Reading Afternoon: Every Monday afternoon, we invite our children’s parent/carer in to spend some quality time reading and sharing stories. Reading afternoon starts at 2.45pm. We look forward to seeing you there!


Pig Contributions: Please remember to 'feed' our pig regularly. In the EYFS we need to purchase a variety of different exciting enhancements for the curriculum and we rely on your generous contributions.


Tapestry: In Reception we use Tapestry as a way of creating electronic profiles for our children. Parents are able to view profiles by accessing Tapestry on the website, or by using the Tapestry app. Tapestry also allows our parents to easily upload photographs, videos and notes of their children learning at home. We also use Tapestry as a means of communicating with parents and often post notifications of newsletters and important dates.


IMPORTANT TAPESTRY NEWS: Tapestry are updating their systems and will be moving all users across to the new system a few at a time. Our scheduled moving date is 1st October 2016. After this date you will need to go to: to log in to your child’s profile.
